In HIS Presence


Read: GENESIS 26: 12-22

Meditation verse:“And he moved from there and dug another well, and they did not quarrel over it. So, he called its name Rehoboth, because he said, ‘for now the Lord has made room for us and we shall be fruitful in the land’ (Genesis 26:22).

Your sphere of influence is your ‘Rehoboth’: —a place of reduced conflict. Since it is your inheritance, God will fight for you, against any contender and help you succeed. Where do you exert the least effort, yet reap the most gain? Some people are frustrated by a lack of progress, because they are operating outside their territories. This amounts to seeking an inheritance that God has not allotted to them.

Your sphere of influence delineates responsibilities and privileges, such as recognition and honor. You are mostly celebrated there because it is where you are making the most impact. Which field are you often called upon to serve in and where are you mostly celebrated?

Your sphere of influence provides an avenue for the fulfilment of God’s promises over your life and the release of His blessings upon you. Where in your life do you see much growth and fruitfulness?

Lastly, your sphere of influence is your ‘point of reference’. It is the place where you are known for something. In Numbers 22, Balak the king wanted Balaam to curse the people of Israel because he was afraid of their prosperity. He sent messengers to Balaam saying, “for I know that he whom you bless is blessed” That was what Balaam was known for. On which soil are you leaving the most footprints? Your answers to all the above questions should reveal your allotted sphere.

Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Saviour?

Jesus says in Mathew 11:28; “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. No matter what you’ve done or where you’ve been, this invitation is for you. Jesus is knocking at the door of your heart; all you need to do is invite Him in, by believing and receiving Him.

Are you ready? Here’s a prayer you can say right now:

Dear Lord, I acknowledge that I am a sinner in need of grace. I believe that Jesus died to set me free from my sins. Thank You Jesus for dying to save me. Please forgive me for all my sins and come into my heart. Be my Lord and Saviour. Fill me with Your Spirit and enable me to live for You from now onwards, in Jesus’ name, Amen

If you prayed this prayer, please email me at and let me know about it. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my eBook; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your journey with Jesus.
